FIRE ALARM SYSTEM DESCRIPTION The Providence VA Medical Center campus utilizes (2) Notifier NFS2-3030 Fire Detection and Alarm System Control Panels (FACP's) in the main building denoted as Building 1. Current configuration of these panels provides a total of 10 signal line circuit (SLC) data addressable loops. All networked panels in the outlying buildings on the campus utilize the Notifier NFS2-640 Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACP's). Notifier FlashScan ® addressable field devices are to be used with the described panels which greatly enhance the speed of communication between analog intelligent devices. Each building also utilizes, as a separate network node, the Digital Voice Command (DVC-EMF) with a Digital Audio Amplifier (DAA-5025F). The Notifier fire alarm system was recently installed in 2010 utilizing state of the art network-based components utilizing (armored) multi-mode fiber distributed underground to connect each FACP and audio DVC. The Notifier NCM-F Network Communications Module in each FACP provides the network-base fiber (Style 7) loop connection to all the panels. The Notifier NCA-2 is provided at the Operations Center Room D1090 as the primary network command and control point of operation. The DET-6B telegraph transmitters (electronic masterbox) are provided in the Fire Command Room 136 for transmission of general fire alarm signals to the Providence Fire Department for all campus networked FACP's through a municipal cable that leaves the main building of the VA Medical Center underground and connects to the Providence Fire Department City Loop circuit located via street light pole by the Regent Street entrance to the VA Medical Center. Building 1 audio is provided from (1) DVC-EMF located in the Operations Center Room D1090 and provides digital messages to (38) DAA-5025F audio amplifiers distributed within Building 1. Each DAA provides (4) each (Style Y) speaker circuits. Each identified "smoke zone" is provided with a separate "voice" circuit with its own dedicated amplifier. The Main Lobby entrance and the Ambulatory Care entrance is provided with a Notifier LCD - 160 Remote Annunciator Panel (RAP), driven from the NCA - 2 in the Operations Center Room D1090. A third LCD - 160 is located in the Emergency Room D1176 reception desk area for 24 hour network monitoring. The Operations Center Room D1090 is equipped with the Notifier ONYX First Vision Graphics Annunciator Panel (GAP) connected via Ethernet cables to an ONYX-works embedded workstation PC located at the PBX Operators Command Station in Room D1090. A second First Vision (GAP) is located at the eastside of the main building and is connected to a second workstation (PC) located in the Fire Command Room 136. These components provide graphical displays of the main building floor plans and outlying buildings to graphically display where an alarm condition as been initiated. The Notifier DVC Digital Voice Command is the heart of the integrated full-featured audio command center. The DVC is located in the Operations Center Room D1090 and provides the digital audio processor to generate audio messages and route them to the respective Notifier Digital Audio Amplifiers DAA-5025F (via Style 6/7 multi-mode fiber) and distributed System Sensor Wall Mounted Speakers. DVC's are powered by 24 Vdc from the local FACP power supplies. DAA's are powered from 120 VAC and are equipped with Battery Back-up. Combination speaker-strobes and Strobe-only devices are powered and synchronized from "bell" circuits of the NFS2-640 FACP's in the outlying buildings and from the Notifier FCPS-24S8 power supply panels within building 1. Building 1 NAC circuits are configured in two modes; Mode 1 (Type IV power supplies) provide (4) individual NAC circuits connected directly to FCPS, Mode 2 (Type I power supplies) provide power to a series of Notifier FCM - 1 Control Modules in conjunction with System Sensor Model MDL sync modules. Strobe synchronization in building 1 is provided from (3) individual sync circuits: (1) for the Sub-basement, (1) for 1st and 2nd Floors, and (1) for the 3rd Floor and above floors. All FCPS panels operate from 120 VAC and are equipped with battery back-up. Additional FCPS panels (Type II Power Supplies) are utilized for 24Vdc power to door-holder and other ancillary/ auxiliary functions or 4-wire monitor/control devices such as Beam Detectors and Duct Smoke Detectors. Currently there are (6) FCPS panels installed for such devices throughout the main building. The ONYX Work Stations located in the Operations Center Room D1090 and the Fire Command Room 136 provide graphical maps of the campus and main building floor plans for event reporting and historical data retrieval purposes for all network points on the system. In addition, there are (2) Notifier PRN-6 printers used to provide a written record of all events associated with the network fire alarm system. The 1st printer located in the Operations Center Room D1090 receives data from the NCA-2, the 2nd printer located in the Fire Command Room 136 receives data from the ONYX-works PC, both printers utilize serial communication. A Notifier NFN Gateway is provided in the Audio/NCA panel located in the Operations Center Room D1090 to provide connection (via owner provided connection) to owner's server. The NFN Gateway provides a means to access and view the system from a remote computer or laptop. Modifications to the system will require fire protection engineering redesign and support using licensed professionals. Existing fire alarm system "as built" or "shop drawings" will be verified by A/E against actual system assembly prior to any redesign modification. All modifications will require updated drawings to be delivered to the VA after testing and commissioning has been completed. All work performed must meet current Joint Commission, Healthcare, and the National Fire Protection Code (NFPA) standards. Modifications to the system in which to add, delete, extend, or relocate; addressable field devices and or panels require extensive knowledge and experience with this state-of-the-art system. Use existing wiring conventions for all circuit types and perform additional load calculations for audio amplification circuits to ensure maintaining a consistent operable and reliable system by manufacturer's specifications - no exceptions. 2 Hour Fire Rated Cable/Conduit is required from panel to panel. Wiring inside a smoke zone for another smoke zone must also be in 2 Hour Fire Rated Cable/Conduit. All tamper and flow switch devices must have their own exclusive addressable interface monitor module (Notifier P/N FMM-1 Flash Scan Monitor Module) - no exceptions. There will be no substitutes. In addition to the hardware modifications, extensive programming and reprogramming may be required to update graphic files and audio file messages based on smoke zones and floor plans of addressable field device modifications. Voice activated messages may have to be added, deleted, or modified within an evacuation zone or modify alert messages going out to additional DVC's - DAA's or FACP's around the campus outside of the initiating zone. In this case, the ONYX Workstations (2), ONYX First Vision (2), DVC's (18), NCA-2 (1 each), NFS2-3030 (2), NFS2-640 (16), may require system reprogramming. Service personnel must be authorized and certified by Notifier to add, delete, modify, or repair any fire alarm system component.
